Our secret waffle ingredient is…you will have to wait! Happy National Waffle Day! I love to eat waffles, do you?
For me, loving waffles is not only the taste, but having my mom make them and serve them up when I come down for breakfast in the morning! What a great reason to roll out of my comfy dog bed with Bunny!
I could eat up all the waffles my mom makes, but she only lets me have a small amount. We don’t get them often either, so it is extra special when I do get to eat them.
So what makes my mom’s waffles so tasty? What is her secret ingredient?
Imagine this! BACON! No, she doesn’t put actual bacon the waffles. Mom makes a buttermilk waffle recipe and instead of shortening, she adds bacon fat. It makes all the difference in the taste bud world, and I love the taste of bacon! Who doesn’t love bacon? A big thanks to my Gramma, as she is the one who taught my mom how to make these special, super tasty waffles!
that is a super idea… and I’m still speechless that you can pose next to a bowl full with bacon…. I’m deep impressed Emma ;o)
I’m a professional…you will get there one day!

Bacon fat is good in lots of things! BTW, that bacon would never last in that dish if Delilah were in the photo. 🙂
I know how to mind my manners and control my impulses as a professional 😉

Yes, your grandma and my mom’s grandma must have gone to school together, ’cause they both use bacon fat for cooking and home made soap, and a lot of things that all smell and most ( not the soap) taste good!!! Chablis
Sometimes the best things in life are the “real” things, like real butter, real maple syrup, and real bacon!

My Swedish Grandmothers hand typed oatmeal cookie recipe from the Great Depression (she was a homesteader in Montana with her logger husband), used bacon fat instead of butter or shortening and added some cardamom. Those are amazing cookies.
Oh goodness! Never thought of putting it in cookies. I better tell my mom who loves cookies!
JeanneP of Bichonpawz says
WOW! We have to agree with Phenny…posing next to an ENTIRE package of bacon…you are a PRO for sure!! Anything made with bacon tastes so much better!!
Bacon makes the world go around!
